Colour Printers, what would you do?
Hope this is the right place for this & my apologises if I am repeating.
At my school we currently have colour printers in all three of our ICT rooms, but now we're getting fed up with the cost of the toners and the speed in which they are used up.
So the plan is to only have black and white in two of the ICT rooms and the colour printer is in the Head of IT room.
Now at present his room has a HP Colour LaserJet 2606dtn, which is not bad until 30 PCs send a 20MB Publisher, Powerpoint or some other large graphic file then we can be waiting 30 minutes for the printer to start.
So he would like a new colour printer with the following:
1.Must cost no more than £500.00
2.Must have Network capabilities
3.Must have a duplex unit
4.Must be cheap to re toner and maintain
5.Must be fast and deal with what ever the student send to it in a reasonable time
(I know, I am asking for a lot)
Some of the ones I have looked at already are:
Epson AcuLaser C2800DN
Epson AcuLaser C1100DN (can't seem to find this one on the net, but I believe such a device does exist)
Is anyone using any of these, are you happy with the result?
Can any one suggest a good colour printer, which can adhere to the following:
Must cost no more than £500.00
Must have Network capabilities
Must have a duplex unit.
Must be cheap to re toner and maintain
Must be fast and deal with what ever the student send to it in a reasonable time
Thanks in advance
